A good book that is both fun and educational. I loved going on trips with Ms. Frizzle ^.^ ( )

Ms. Frizzle's class hops on the bus and goes...inside Arnold! They learn about the human body from within: down the esophagus, through the intestines, into the blood, heart, lungs, brain, nerves, muscles, and...they get sneezed out. At the end, the class makes a huge labeled chart of the human body.

L did not like this one as much, not sure why. ( )

This book is a great and fun read, where students will learn all about the human body. In the book, Mrs. Frizzle shrinks the magic school bus and they all go into an actual human body where it is full of crazy adventure. I would recommend this book for students of all ages in elementary school. It is a really fun way for students to learn more about the human body with all of the fun fictional characters . I would use this book to introduce a new science unit about the human body! ( )
